Raining Cats & Dogs
hi, my name is shonna and i took my dog, crosby joe cocker to be groomed,. the cut and service were excellent. they where there at 8am as they said they would be. i couldnt be happier. special shout out to jill and christie. i also told them that crosby is feelin his manhood ( not neutered) and he may growl, but i have never known him to nip. they said he was a perfect gentleman, which endears them to me even more. crosby had his first cut at PETSMART, it was okay and went okay. the next time he went to be groomed, it took over 8 hours, with an appointment.. needless to say i was NOT A HAPPY CAMPER, neither was crosby. i would just like to remind people, just because a business isnt owned by a large chain, it can still be outstanding. oh and i forgot, the same services at PETSMART would have cost over 70 bucks. support your local small business and check out "rainin cats and dogs" 760-7430136, sunset, ( by the bus stop) esco. thank you

Cold Nose Pet Salon
We have two standard poodles and one toy poodle. We have been going to Cold Nose for probably three years now. One of our standards is a "puppy" (65 pounds) and they do a great job with him. People stop me all the time to say what a good groom he has. All three dogs walk right in the door...no hesitation. I greatly appreciate the wonderful care and love they get at Cold Nose!!

The ladies there did a great job with my 9 month old Eskipoo, Zeus. He loved them! But then again I don't think there is a gal he doesn't love. I will definitely be taking him back.
Tips & Advices
Some pet groomers have viewing areas where owners can sit and watch their pets being treated. Most prevent owners from being in the same room as the pet, however, as the owner's presence might cause the pet to become too excited.
Pets that cannot interact with strangers do not make good professional grooming candidates. Sometimes medication can help, but some groomers don't take animals that have been sedated. If a pet becomes too unruly, a groomer may end the session entirely.
It's best to fully vaccinate pets before bringing them to their first grooming appointment. Dogs should receive the DA2PPC vaccine, which stands for canine distemper, canine andenovirus type 2, canine parvovirus, and parainfluenza. It's also a good idea to vaccinate dogs against Bordedatella (aka “kennel cough”). In fact, New York City requires dogs receive both DAPP and Bordetella shots. Cats, meanwhile, should get the FVRCP vaccine: feline viral rhinotracheitis, calicivirus infection, and panleukopenia. In addition, all pets should be up to date on their rabies shots. Owners should wait at least 24 hours after getting their pet vaccinated before bringing it to the groomers.
Technically, there is no such thing as a pet that is too old for a professional groomer. In fact, older pets with joint or mobility issues often can't groom themselves and need someone else to clean them. However, pets that are blind, deaf, or have serious medical issues might not do well at a groomer, especially if the person is inexperienced. Owners should feel free to ask potential groomers about their understanding of elderly pet issues. Often, older pets will exhibit puppy-like behavior and squirm or yelp during grooming. Alternatively, they might not be able to stand for long periods of time. As such, grooming an older pet usually takes more time than grooming a young one.
Puppies and kittens should be at least 10 weeks old before their first professional grooming session. They should be used to being gently handled by strangers and comfortable being separated from their owners for a few hours at a time.
